Spec. of the earlier Linhof 23s!

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I am looking for info on those old/inexpensive models of Linhof Tech. 23s (not the 45 of any), which may include the III and IV. What are the size of the front standard housing (i.e. the size of their lensboard)? What are the max. bellow extension? Is back revolvable? Does any model have a Glafloc back? What is the reasonable cost for a good shaped body (only)? What is the body weight? Is there any non-RF model since...?

I have gone through some of the URLs and here, but could not find details. I appreciate very much your help! (or, point me to elsewhere)

The "Linhof Camera Story" a hard cover book published by Linhof covers all Linhof cameras as well as prototypes manufactured in the 110 year history of Linhof. it includes pictures and specifications.

It has a suggested list price of $75.00 and a total of 200 copies are available for the US market.

Linhof does not specify their lens boards by size. The Tech 70 uses Technika 69 lensboards - the current ones. No 69 Linhof ever had an Intrnational back. They only accept Linhof roll backs and Polaroid backs.
